VIDEO PREMIERE: Tycho – Artist Feature

You might disagree, but Scott Hansen, better known by Tycho, is in our opinion quite the interesting musician. We had the chance to sit down with him before his show at The Crofoot back in April. Also, this video will definitely prep you or fill the empty spot left in your head that’s dedicated for Electric Forest this weekend.

Bleached – For The Feel

Bleached just released the A side to their new 7inch record that will be released September 16th on Dead Oceans. It’s called “For The Feel” and it’s going to be your new favorite song to cruise in your car with all the windows down. It’s upbeat, catchy and features a killer guitar solo which lands it in our spot as the Jam of the Day. If you missed it, last year we did an interview with Jennifer Clavin of Bleached that you can check out here!

How To Dress Well – Face Again

How to Dress Well is taking over the airwaves with his sultry voice and intriguing beats. In “Face Again” Tom Krell’s voice perfectly syncs up with droning music as well as soulful melodies. Tom Krell isn’t afraid to press the envelope in studio as well as in music videos, this one especially since it depicts a ceremonial burial of some sort. Either way How to Dress is one of the artists to watch this year.

Swans – Just a Little Boy (For Chester Burnett)

I was lucky enough to catch the experimental rock gods Swans at Saint Andrews Hall in Detroit Saturday night and they totally floored me. It was a completely out-of-body, cathartic experience for me and 2nd only maybe to seeing the Knife earlier this year in Chicago. They played all new material, but the song that stood out the most for me was the To Be Kind highlight, “Just a Little Boy (For Chester Burnett).” Watching Michael Gira command his entire band with angry thrashing while screaming “I’M JUST A LITTLE BOYYYYYY I NEED LOOOOOOOVE” was insane and made my brain feel like spaghetti. It’s one I’ll remember for a looooong time.

Weekday Wrap Up

What have you been listening to this week?! Here’s a brief update on what has been going through the headphones of some of our staff members!

Assistant Program Director Jacob Richards
WHITE LUNG. This feminist punk band just dropped a new album called Deep Fantasy, and it’s already looking to be one of my favorite punk releases of the year. Is has the same urgency and aggression as Perfect Pussy’s march release, Say Yes to Love (my #1 punk album of the year so far) but with a refreshing and impassioned sense of clarity. Also, the Needledrop just turned my on to an EP from a band called Kiddy Pool? The EP is literally titled Super Pony Perv Plus and it includes songs such as: “Moms and Their Blonde College Age Daughters”, as well as family favorite, “I Guh Guh Got A$$bergers From a Toilet Seat”. It’s electronic/surf/noise madness and it makes me really happy. *not for the faint of heart* Read More…
